Another big surprise from my fellow Russian blogger, Gvendalen at Ocean of Imagination. Thank you so much Gvendalen. I am very honored that you have picked me. I want to share this award with those who have not received it before. I ask that you link back to me and also check out Gvendalen's blog too! It is wonderful.
To Understand Another Language on a Blog:
I don't speak Russian, but I use Google Translate and bring it up in a tab right next to her tab. If you look at it you will see how easy it is to change from English to whatever other language you need. If you aren't sure of the langeuage it will also Detect Language for you. I keep the Google link in my Favorites so it is always handy. I right click on it to bring it up in the other tab and then cut and paste for the blog I am visiting. Hope this helps some who would like to do it. Different cultures are a love of mine. If you need clearer steps, EMAIL ME.
Please check out my new card below. I hope you like it.
I had been drooling over anyone and everyone who had this set, I Love Roses, by Flourishes...so I broke with my rules for no new stamps in January and got it and 2 other sets I can't wait to use.
1. The rose and leaves was stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock with Encore Gold .
2. Ranger Gold Embossing Powder was added and heat embossed.
3. A Niji waterbrush was used to watercolor the rose with Twinkling H2O's Cherry Sorbet.
4. The rose and the leaves were trimmed close but not too close to the embossed edges.
5. The edges were then painted with the same colors used to paint inside the images.
1. A piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock was put through the Cuttlebug using embossing folder Textile Textures.
2. It was put through the Cuttlebug again using the next to the largest Spellbinders Large Oval die cut, a little off to the right. The trimmed rose was used to decide how far so the rose would overlap both the outer edge and part of the oval.
3. It was then mounted on a piece of Bazzill Birthstone October cardstock.
4. The next size down die was used to get the center oval of smooth cardstock. It was also put through to emboss only the edge of the oval.
5. The edges were slid over the surface of a VersaMark pad, then dipped in the same Ranger Gold Embossing powder and heat embossed as shown.
6. It was mounted to the center of the cut-out oval.
7. The rose and leaves were mounted using dimensional glue spots.
1. The ribbon was tied using a Martha Stewart Double Bow technique and Michaels Swiss Dot ribbon and mounted as shown
2. A brass heart #2046 by Fancifuls online was mounted using glue dots.
3. The corners and bottom of the card were done using leftovers from Peel Offs.
Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share.
